In Friday night's 2-1 loss the Predators registered an impressive 44 shots on net and the first two periods went scoreless. The one thing missing was contributions from a blue line that tied a franchise record for goals during the regular season.

A groin strike to Simon briefly paused action early in the third, but Dvalishvili was undeterred, continuing his slow march forward and bringing the fight to the cage.

As the clock reached the final minute, Dvalishvili shot for a takedown, but Simon reversed the position into a choke.
